We're in the main tower now... This is a photo of a shachi, or mythological killer-whale-type-creature on the castle. (Those of you who have already visited may remember that Nagoya Castle has some famous gold shachi on its roof.) More than decoration, these were apparently intended to help protect the castle from fire. Posted by Picasa
